Former NSW Minister for Ageing and Disability Services, Andrew Constance, took a tour of Tulgeen Disability Service’s last week, ahead of the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Tulgeen chair Grattan Smith and chief executive officer Jen Russell welcomed an eager Mr Constance to discuss plans for development and progress towards implementing the NDIS.
He began the tour discussing the creation of a Community Hub at the Living Room and Food Basket space at Riverside Nursery, and the possible creation of a new home for the Bega Valley Workcrew at the Taronga Precinct.
“The beauty with being in the country is the exciting relationship between Tulgeen and the people,” he said.
“I’m super excited about what these guys are doing.”
